What else are you searching for in the UK?

Royal Mail Postcode Finder is an easy to use tool which you can use to find a post code by searching with full, or nearly full, street address.

If you have the post code already, you can also use the tool to search for house numbers within that postcode.

ROYAL MAIL POST CODE SEARCH

Post Office Postcode Finder is similar to that provided by Royal Mail, allowing up to 50 free searches a day. With both these search tools, you can also look up a full address or post code using an alias address, like a building name, as long as you have some further information on the locality of the building.

HOW TO SEARCH FOR POSTCODES

The post code, and the street or road number of the house or building, are the main constituents of a UK address. It is normal to include the name of the street or road when writing an address, but even without these, Royal Mail will still be able to deliver any post.

In England, searches for London postcodes are the most common, unsurprisingly. But home and business addresses in even the smallest towns have their own.

Without the correct post code, there is a high probability that your mail will not reach its intended destination. Luckily, using the checker tools above it is almost always possible to find a postcode, using either the Royal Mail or Post Office postcode finder.

When you address your mail, you don't need to include the county name - your letters and other post will reach your intended recipient without one. If, however, you prefer to include a county name, you can do so.

So, while you could write an address in this way;

Recipient,

52 Street Name,

Town Name,

County,

ZR1 9AA

You could actually just write it as;

Recipient,

52,

ZR1 9AA

and your mail should still arrive at the correct address.

ABOUT THE UK POSTCODE SYSTEM

The UK postcode system is a hierarchical structure used to identify specific geographic locations within the United Kingdom. It was introduced by the Royal Mail to facilitate efficient mail delivery.

Here is a breakdown of the components and structure of UK postcodes:

Postcode Structure

A typical UK postcode is made up of two parts, separated by a space: Outward Code: This is the first part of the postcode, and it identifies the broader geographical area. It consists of one or two letters followed by one or two digits (e.g., "EC1", "W1A", "B1").

Area: The letters represent the postal area.

District: The digits represent the postal district within that area.

Inward Code: This is the second part of the postcode, and it helps pinpoint the exact location within the district. It consists of a digit followed by two letters (e.g., "1AA", "2BB", "3CD").

Sector: The digit in the inward code represents a specific sector within the district.

Unit: The two letters represent a group of addresses or a single large delivery point.

Example Postcode For example, in the postcode "SW1A 1AA":

SW is the area (South West London).

1A is the district (Westminster).

1 is the sector.

AA is the unit.

Non-geographic Postcodes: Some postcodes do not correspond to specific geographic areas but are used for businesses or organizations that receive large volumes of mail, e.g., "BFPO" for British Forces Post Office addresses.

Unique Postcodes: Some large organizations or government buildings may have unique postcodes. Examples of UK Postcodes London: SW1A 0AA (Buckingham Palace) Birmingham: B1 1AA Manchester: M1 1AE Edinburgh: EH1 1BB Cardiff: CF10 1DD

Finding Postcode Information

To find more detailed information about a specific postcode, you can use various online tools and databases provided by the Royal Mail or third-party services like Postcode Finder, UK Postcode Lookup, and others. See above on this page. These tools can provide details about the area, the type of premises, and even demographic information.

Uses of Postcodes

Mail Delivery: The primary use is for sorting and delivering mail efficiently.

Navigation: Used in GPS and mapping systems for location identification.

Statistics and Analysis: Used by government agencies and businesses for demographic analysis, planning, and resource allocation.

Emergency Services: Helps in locating addresses quickly.

The UK postcode system is an integral part of addressing and logistics in the UK, ensuring that mail and packages are delivered accurately and efficiently.
